Best headphones in the world?

Recommended Posts

listening the dt48a now

i cant thank dale enough for this babies are really true hifi

and

reading thru headphile for the history behind it

makes the value even more than just beautiful music

nothing seems to come close to true neutrality of sound as it is recorded

I hear a kind of perfection with the DT48 that has similarity in speakers in the very expensive horn types and possibly planars and electrostatics. The distortions under normal listening conditions are an order of magnitude less than conventional dynamics. The fully-machined driver system with the specially encased magnet assembly is unique, giving great control over the membrane that is approached only by the Tesla drivers in the dynamic designs.

things had a small bad turn today

my tubes went out, not sure what went wrong

luckily the O2 still around

pairing it with the dt48a makes it more neutral sounding

i should say

but with proper sealing

the bass and mid and highs are fully balanced out

but having the drivers closer to the ears brings out more of the bass, advantage of having small ears and head, so just by changing the position of the headphone can bring the drivers closer to my ears :D

I dont rely solely of FR graphs, but the TMA is dark and not so clear, so how much more can you expect out of the studio version, in a review somewhere, it was reviewed as fuzzy, so much for that.

to me FR graph is rough gauge but the graph was official so can kinda believe that was what they wanna portray

 

but ur ears are still the best judge

and somehow listening to my tf10 on the way home now doesnt give the same joy as the dt48a

 

its like the pepper was taken away from the omelette a light flavour was lost

Bro dalethorn - what have u paired the dt48a with last time?

 

Last listen was with O2 amp connected by LOD from iphone. I didn't have the DACs yet so that would be interesting to hear.

DACs would round off the edges and sound more natural.
